With numerous photographs, maps and diagrams this book describes the work of the Royal Navy in the Eastern Mediterranean from the outbreak of war until the spring of 1941. It explains how, by achieving and maintaining supremacy over vastly superior enemy forces, it had played a pivotal role in preventing the fall of Malta, Suez and Alexandria, an event that would have endangered Britain’s whole Middle Eastern position.
